THE GARDEN STORY

Here at Retail Construction Services, Inc., we are dedicated to giving back.

Give back not only to those in need within our community, but also the future generations of this wonderful community. What started out as a great idea has grown exponentially and has become an amazing reality. Here at the RCS Giving Garden, school groups, master gardeners, corporate volunteers, and our own employees work together for the common good of teaching children the art of gardening and the importance of healthy eating.

New Snow, Greenhouses, Seeds and Hope!

RCS Teaching Giving Garden Greenhouse  (Click to enlarge)
We had a new snow fall today!  Our greenhouse is covered, but it won't be long until those seed's of hope are planted and the youth return to the garden to learn where their food comes from!

We received an email from Julie Froslan Ferralez, Food Shelf Manager at Valley Outreach food shelf, where all of our produce is donated.  She said:

"As winter, theoretically, comes to an end, my attention has now been turned to garden produce and the Retail Construction Giving Garden was our top donor last year! Your support is so crucial in Valley Outreach’s efforts to bring fresh produce to our clients."

We are so excited for the greenhouse to shed its new winter coat, for what the new year brings, increasing our produce donation, and hearing the laughter of children back in the garden!

Audrey Hepburn said "To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow"  - I'd like to add to that;  "To plant a Teaching Giving Garden is to believe in the youth of tomorrow!"
